Susan B. Anthony (1820 – 1906) American Social Reformer and Feminist

“Forget conventionalisms; forget what the world thinks of you stepping out of your place. Think your best thoughts, speak your best words, work your best works, looking to your own conscience for approval. … Cautious, careful people, always casting about to preserve their reputation and social standing, never can bring about a reform. Those who are really in earnest must be willing to be anything or nothing in the world’s estimation …”

— Susan B. Anthony
